Leaf and yard waste collection will continue through November 30

Place leaves and yard debris in large paper leaf bags or open barrels labeled “yard waste.” Do not use plastic bags; they will not be collected. Two free “yard waste” stickers are available per household for barrels by calling 617-635-4500.

Tie branches with string; do not put branches in barrels.

Put barrels, bags, and branches on the curb by 7 am on your recycling day.

Please note: for the two weeks prior to October 15, leaves will not be taken at trash pickup; please hold on to your yard waste until the leaf collection begins.
